Town Centre Urban Cross for TweedLove 2015!
Where: Peebles High Street
When: Tuesday 19 May at 7pm (Straight after the Family Ride at 6.15pm)
The Tweedlove Festival takes place just over the Scottish border in Peebles for the last two weeks of May. It culminates in the Enduro World Series on May 29-30th, but there are all sorts of other road and off road entertainments and events to keep everyone happy. Brand new for 2015, LoveCross is an exciting, “fun packed, roaring, urban cyclocross inspired event based in the heart of Peebles”. Building on the successes of the popular Peebles sprint, LoveCross takes the best elements and hurls them into a non-stop, action packed, open to all, battle for the podium. Almost as exciting to watch as it is to enter, but only almost.
The event begins with a Le Mans style start along the High street before competitors get on their bike to face the course ahead. A mixture of fast open sprints, tight corners, steps, cobbles, paving, man made berms, sand pits and multiple line choices. Despite all this, the organisers say that there’s nothing the average rider can’t tackle and getting off and running is all part of the plan. Riders can face the course on any type of bike, each having its own advantages and shortfalls.
If you’re not riding get trackside to cheer the competitors on. Soak up the atmosphere and get the cowbells at the ready!
And what else were you going to do on a Tuesday evening in May anyway? We hope to see some of you there…
